Book Description:

Aoleon and Gilbert have become the Luminon’s top priority in stopping the Martian resistance movement, and after being chased by the Royal Paladin Guard, they are forced to flee the Martian Megalopolis. Aoléon, Gilbert and Zoot escape with the help of Bizwat and his newly found friend, Helios, a first generation soldierbot.

After their saucer is destroyed, they crash land somewhere in the deep Martian desert, and they set out to locate Kyrios and the secret base where Aoleon’s parents are being held captive.

After battling the forces of nature, starvation, a Klyklon dust storm, (and not to mention a giant slor that almost swallows them alive), they finally make it to their destination. However, after Kyrios gives Gilbert some basic training to develop his budding psionic power, they learn that their journey is far from over.

Will Aoléon, Glbert, Bizwat, Helios, and Zoot be able to rescue Aoleon’s parents and stop the Martian invasion of Earth in time?

My Thoughts

This series is just so much fun. The story just deepens with each new installment. In this episode we are treated to a daring escape, a crash landing, a desert crossing journey, an old, old, old Martian that is a Yoda-type mentor, a massive sandstorm, and a giant slor that tries to eat our intrepid heroes alive. 

In this book we learn more about Bizwat, the Procyon warrior friend of Aoleon, and we are introduced to Helios, a soldierbot. The action moves out of the Megalopolis and into the Martian desert so LeVasseur beautifully develops another part to his expanding Martian landscape. Aoleon and Gilbert's relationship continues to grow and strengthen. Their abilities are continually tested and explored. I am anxiously waiting to see how they turn out.

Once again, I am digging this series. It is tons of fun and anyone that likes sci-fi and/or good middle school stories would do well to add this to your TBR list. I can't wait to get into the fifth book and plan on doing so soon.
